Cornette challenges Russo to charity fight


September 1, 2010


Jim Cornette’s seemingly endless, diabolical ploy to plague Vince Russo’s dreams seems to know no bounds. Earlier in the year, TNA involved local authorities in warning Cornette that he had crossed a line. After some silence, it seems the jabber-jawed Ring of Honor GM has thought of a resolution to this (rather one-sided) war, once and for all.

Cornette has challenged Vince Russo to a fight at the third annual Ring Roasts, which is being held this October 15 at the Crowne Plaza in Monroe, NJ. In a promo released today on the Ring Roasts website (, Cornette offers to donate his end of any purse money to the WHAS Crusade for Children in Louisville, an organization that helps disadvantaged children.

Cornette and Russo worked side-by-side on WWE and TNA’s creative team. Cornette had developed a distaste for Russo, his booking style, and generally anything north of Delaware.

Ring Roasts is an annual comedic tribute co-promoted by Kayfabe Commentaries and Legends of the Ring. Tickets and more information about the roast is available at

    I am no big fan of Russo so I don’t want it to sound like I am sticking up for him but man oh man is Jim Cornette an idiot. I think Russo could take him, he should accept. All this man does is run his mouth. That’s all he knows how to do and when he rants on he talks like he knows so much, and I know he does when it comes to the wrestling business, but he sounds so unprofessional with how he goes about everything. Man I can not stand the man when he goes on his badgering rants.

    I wish Jim Cornette would just go away, live quietly and happily in his home in Kentucky and never be heard from again.

    Cornette is the only thing in wrestling I make sure to pay attention to anymore.
